There are a couple real nice Avon Christmas Steins. Here is the “Avon Father Christmas” Stein that was created in 1994.

This handsome, intricately detailed ceramic stein portrays traditional images of santa claus and the quaint charm of turn-of-the century holiday celebrations.

One side of the stein depicts jolly old st. Nick with a bagful of toys and a twinkle in his eye.

On the other side, santa listens while two enchanted children tell him their christmas wishes.

The body of the stein also portrays the joyous rituals of bringing home the tree and skating on the village pond.

The pewter lid is adorned with a ceramic snow-covered tree, and a delicate pewter snowflake services as thumb-pull.

The avon father christmas stein is dated and numbered for collectors and bears avon’s source of fine collectibles symbol, your assurance of the finest quality and craftsmanship and of the highest standards of excellence.

A couple years later, in 1996, Avon came out with the “A Christmas Carol” Stein, seen below:

It has a colored scene on the front – shown and with ornate detailing around the stein, pewter lid base with thumb tab. Of course, a beautiful picture of Mr. Scrooge!

The lid has a caroler with gifts on top and a face on the underside.

This stein is about 10 inches tall from base to lid and is just about 4-1/2″ across the bottom and just over 3″ across the mouth. It is made in Brazil.
